    it will push out but you would be better off just taking the bumper off itll save u alot of hassle. It clips in just the same as the bottom half of your bumper

    The bumper comes off pretty easily... There are about four or five push-studs along the top of it (along the line of the slam-panel); and then a few screws in each wheel arch. Once you've undone/removed those, the whole thing slides forward out of its mounts (it might take a bit of wiggling at the trailing corners).

    If you're going to do it on your own it's best to have something non-abraisive and padded on the deck as it's awkward to handle given its size.

    Regards,

    Rob.

    Also when your putting it back on, dont be afraid to give it a bit of a knock to get the sides in

    Hi Jason,

    Can I ask where bouts you got your angel eye headlights? I was thinking of getting myself a set but heard that there is a lot of cheap and nasty sets out there that fog up.

    I've got angel eyes on my car, had them for a while now, and to be honest id say dont bother - my car is a pre facelift so one-piece lights are a huge improvement, but the rings that make up the angel eyes themselves are jsut 4 leds, The actual unit itself is well constructed and mine dont suffer from any fogging

    I think they're FK automotive ones, but are meant for the facelift car, i believe the design is slightly different from the pre-facelift ones, in mines there is no single bulb sidelight only the rings of the angel eyes, most of them have a bulb somewhere too.

    Got em off ebay, 40 quid, cant really grumble
